Why Travelers Choose This Tour
This exclusive tour allows you to see St. Peter’s chapel during mass.
The tour through the Vatican was amazing. The Sistine Chapel was inspiring, and our guide Marco shared details that became apparent when we were inside. Our guide made all the difference as his commentary really shed light on the history of all we saw. And we saw a great deal. After quickly visiting the Sistine Chapel we circled back to view the grounds more thoroughly. Marco provides rich details of the relationship between Michelangelo and Raphael, and then we saw the artwork. The tour ends in Saint Peter's basilica. Fantastic tour, delivered by a great guide.
The early morning start was nice to beat the massive crowds to see the Sistine Chapel. When we passed back through the chapel about an hour later it was a significantly more crowded. Our tour guide was very informative although I never caught her name.
Marco was a fantastic tour guide through the Vatican, Sistine Chapel and Basilica. He was very knowledgeable sharing wonderful insights about the art. His attention to detail on the logistics combined with his knowledge was a winning combination. The one-hour early entrance made the experience much more enjoyable and was very worthwhile. Thank you!
Our tour guide Raf was incredible. She was so enthusiastic and so knowledgeable. She ensured that we got to do and see everything before most crowds. If you go on this tour try and go with RAF as a guide. Grazie mille!
My wife and I greatly enjoyed this tour. The Vatican Museums are enormous and a good guide really points out the highlights. Franco is an experienced guide with a plan. He got us into the Sistine Chapel before the crushing crowd. I can not say enough positive things about this guide!
